Whirlpool icemaker not giving cubes, only crushed ice
Help, please! Our icemaker is on the CUBE setting, but is only making crushed ice when we press the chute for ice. The ice hopper is about half way full, and it has been working fine until today. Unit is less than a year old. Water dispenser is working well.

Your Icemaker always makes solid cubes. Goes into bucket. your selection on the dispenser is not being recognized . Could be the control on the door (selector) . Also the selinod that switches from whole to crushed located at the assy behind bucket, Varies ON Model #
if you have selected cubed on the door and still wont dispense cubed ice likely cause is the cubed ice solinoid( located behind the panel in where the auger motor is located) thats the motor that turns the curly thing in the ice cube resivoir.....!!!
You have a solenoid switch which switches the
dispenser back and forth from crushed to cube. It could be stuck or not working
or the parts connecting it could be disconnected or broken. You will have to
observe to see if any parts are moving and if any noise is coming from the
Check the bar below the icemaker bin. There is a gold color metal bar that goes from the front of the bin to the back and goes into a lever at the back of the freezer. If the bar gets on the wrong side of the lever it will be stuck in crushed mode.
